The City of Lethbridge is a vibrant community with much to offer for our visiting international students. With a population of over 90 000, Lethbridge is large enough to provide all major amenities and recreational facilities, and yet small enough for easy access by city bus. We have a safe and caring community with diverse cultural backgrounds. Important additional information about our city is available at:
- City bus information

Within our city we have two major post secondary institutions including the University of Lethbridge and the Lethbridge College. International students who attend Lethbridge high schools would be well prepared for acceptance into our post secondary schools.
